Traveling around the world requires a certain talent in packing. Thankfully we’ve been able to mooch off the ideas of others. We’ve brought pretty small packs with us, about 50L each- about the size of a carry on bag. We could definitely bring larger, but we’re trying to make things as easy as possible, and big luggage just doesn’t work well hoping on/off buses and trains. We chose our packs carefully based on size, fit and features. That doesn’t mean we won’t and haven’t gotten rid of stuff along the way. We’ll update this list, but here is what we have in our packs as of December 15, 2010 as we leave for Africa:
